This exciting programme (the first in the UK and internationally), aims to provide opportunities for gaining more work experience in the cultural and heritage sector, building on theoretical frameworks learned in the:

and applying these within a work-based context.
After completing your MA, you take a supervised and mentored work-based placement module over 36 weeks in an institution, organisation or agency related to art museums or art galleries.

* the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art;
* Beamish North of England Open Air Museum;
* Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums;
* the Great North Museum,
* and Hartlepool Arts, Museums and Events.
The work-based placement requires the submission of a project agreed between the placement host organisation, the student and the University.
24 months full time; 48 months part time

A minimum of an upper-second-class Honours degree, or an international equivalent, in a relevant art-related subject at university. These include:
* art history,
* visual studies,
* fine art,
* and photography.
Basic familiarity with art history is particularly important because you will be required to work confidently with art historical concepts and concerns as they pertain to the art museum and gallery context.
It is not necessary for you to have a full degree in an art-related subject, but it should be a significant component of your degree. The successful completion of the MA and a positive report from the host of the eight-week placement completed in the first year is also required.
